7:02 pm
area which received its heaviest snowfall and more than 15 years. fox news senior meteorologist is in the extreme weather is a judgment and is the very latest. >> it is crazy. we are already seeing over a foot of snow in massachusetts. 18 inches. some snow totals could surpass our forecast. we are looking at it right now, really from d.c. to philadelphia and new york. the storm really has not gotten its act together. two pieces of energy, one coming across the ohio river valley. then another piece of energy coming up from the gulf of mexico. those two combined are merging together off the coast and will bring a nor'easter. the problem is we could see wind gusts in excess of 50 miles-per-hour. even if you don't get the big,ie wind gusts in excess of 50
7:03 pm
miles-per-hour you cannot travel anywhere. rose will be shut down overnight. there's a look right now. the temperatures dropping as the storm continues to move eastward. filling in across jersey, philadelphia, new york. boston, it has been snowing. that is the first piece of energy. the nor'easter has not gotten its act together, but when the guests already along the coast. thirty-six, 37 miles-per-hour. nantucket 40 miles-per-hour. this storm has not even really gotten its act together. that is the problem. as people say, well, here it is, it is not here yet. it will start to crank up overnight and into tomorrow. a blizzard warnings for much of long island and all along the coast. that means when gusts in excess of 50 miles-per-hour for an extended length of time. and winter weather warnings for

of the city's a uc here. snow totals, several inches. washington d.c., a couple of inches. its temperature will drop. overnight tonight, 3:00 a.m., the worst of it. and then the bulk of the storm will be out of fear by tomorrow afternoon, but we will still see wind, and temperatures that we have not felt in years across the north east. we will feel wind chills the low zero. take a look at this. 8:00 p.m. tonight, dropping as the system cranks up the-2 is what is going to feel like. we are still at zero and new york state -- new york city,-8, you get the picture. frigid. a lot of kids have the day off, but they will not get to enjoy that snow day because it is going to be dangerously, dangerously cold. the wind will continue to haul
7:05 pm
overnight tonight and into tomorrow. even when the storm is long gone we will see the potential for blowing snow and wind up conditions. people are urged to stay inside. this is one of the computer models of philadelphia, opting to around 10 inches. 11 inches on top of what they have already received in boston. they've already received several inches. as i mentioned, nor the boss and we have totals in excess of 1 foot, and we are not done yet. this is just darling. back to you. lou: it always bothers me when you say it is a starting. >> and you know what, next week, next week, he talked about chicago, they could set all-time record lows. even colder air will sing again from canada. really incredible. i think spring is 76 days away. lou: and i am sitting here trying to remember the last time we saw this many 70 temperatures in the forecast plus these
7:06 pm
extraordinary wind that you are warning us about. this is quite a combination. lou: -- >> and we just started winter. typically run we see this so early on, sometimes it is a precursor to a lot more storms and cold. lou: thank you. well, turning now to obamacare. officially the law of the land. 2 million people now have medical coverage zero obamacare because of a late surge in enrollment, and nearly 4 million are qualify for coverage through medicaid. the obama administration is not saying how many of those 2 million enrolled in private insurance plans actually a plate -- paid the first premium, payment that is to combat the latest, by next friday. house energy and commerce committee chairman says the figure is critical. >> time will tell as to the
7:07 pm
hospitals, physicians demand terms of whether people are actually -- that show up are actually -- payments will be made, how many people will actually write the check to get into the system. lou: we have some indication on how many people of pain at first premium and we will be taking that up without panel tonight on obamacare. the white house, we want to bring you up today, also forced to defend its obamacare contraception mandate after a challenge from justice sotomayor who was appointed by president obama, temporarily exempting to catholic church affiliated non profits from having to provide contraception coverage to their employees, of course spending in response from the administration . one attorney explains their concerns price listen, we have been a catholic organization for one month and 75 years.
7:08 pm
everyone knew seizes knows that we are. we can't turn around and sir disrespecting life at its earliest stages by paying for and participating in drugs and devices that can take human life. lou: and the administration has until 10:00 tomorrow night to respond. a white house official says they are confident that the birth control rule will be ultimately upheld. the administration is also betting that all obamacare needs is a good pr push. health and human services secretary kathleen sibila as will be publishing 38 obamacare op-eds in papers nationwide over the coming days. the white house is asking americans to log on to their website and share their obamacare success stories. we are sure that the white house will be bombarded by those success stories, so we would like to get in and out as best we can and be something of an intermediary with the overflow.
7:09 pm
the asking that you e-mail us your obamacare success stories and we will share with them with the audience. just send them to the successful obamacare stories at loudobbs.com. joining us now is senior fellow with the manhattan institute, a former policy adviser to the romney campaign to my grace mary turner. it did have you with us. dr. mark siegel, a member of the fox news medical 18. good to have you here. let's start in that order. your reaction to the idea that most of this is medicaid signups and about half of it is enrollment as best we understand the term from the administration of about 2 million people. does this sound like success?
7:10 pm
>> the blizzard of obamacare is just starting and will be with us were a long time. on the point of enrollment, you said that 2 million people have enrolled in the exchange's. that is not true because you are not actually enrolled in a health plan unless you have paid and until you pay that first month premium. a lot of people, the vast majority have not paid because the obama administration is only now on the process of building bi t infrastructure that allows people to pay their insurers. of people walk in and it will not have coverage. it will go see a doctor, think they're paying a bill, and it will not have coverage. lou: to be clear, in the spirit of generosity and openness, using the numbers provided by the a ministration expecting that there might be some qualification and some wrangling with facts which you have begun here tonight, and we appreciate you doing so. >> i have a word for it, the
7:11 pm
undocumented. we have replaced the uninsured with the undocumented. they come to the doctor's office and say, i signed up. the doctor says to my can't find any evidence of it or you don't have a check. am i supposed to see you and maybe the government will see a penny down the line? we already have enough trouble trying to figure out the mandate for electronic of records. trying to make transitions. now with obamacare coming in we have patients that will not end up being -- we will not be paid for seeing them. plus quality of medicine is in jeopardy. so it is a perfect storm. lou: going to your point on this issue, about 30% of obamacare enrollees in the states of washington and nevada, about 50 percent have made their fiist premium payment. those are the only states right now that are providing a breakdown.
7:12 pm
how concerned are you? >> i am hugely concerned. yes, there will be success stories. there will be people who get health insurance, but my goodness, they did not need to turn a two and a half trillion health sector over to the federal government. millions and millions of people have already had their coverage disrupted because they don't comply with all of the obamacare rules. tens of millions more people will. why on earth did they need to create problems for so many people in order to solve that for the few people who could not get coverage before, we could have solved through expanded high-risk pools and other state programs. lou: the earliest descriptions by one of the sponsors was last year, i train wreck. it is now, if anything, more of

7:20 pm
science published new economic research that shows that contrary to the president's promise which is the reason that we have to have obamacare is because all of us are paying higher premiums because people in getting free care through the emergency room. it turns out that if you expand medicaid there is even more emergency room usage. these people on medicaid cannot actually get access to a primary-care doctor. a lot of doctors don't take medicaid. lou: as many as one-half of our doctors don't take medicaid, just to underline the point, just, by the way, well-known. >> yes. i think this study that just came out today, you will hear a lot about that. undermines one of the central rationales of the law which is that we have to have obamacare because more people will have insurance, there will be less free care in the emergency room command premiums will go down. the opposite is true.
7:21 pm
premiums are going up, more inappropriate use of the emergency room and expanding medicaid. lou: i want to get to another policyke. obamacare is a series of while fully inverted models -- it is just upside-down thinking cavalla disastrous contract with the general public policy, economics, any part of the architecture of this law. let me turn to the other part that is upside down. people are not talking what the employer sponsored insurance in this company. employer sponsored health insurance. the truth is that this started with breaking a contract and changing another model which was employer sponsored health insurance. the corporations, the big corporations in this country, every bit as much responsible, in my opinion, as is president and the democratic party for pushing this scam, this train
7:22 pm
wreck out on thh american people in the form of a panacea that is obviously nothing more than a train wreck. >> and this is the busiest sorry that is coming up in 2014-15. your spending a lot of time focusing on the individual market, but a big majority are getting insurance to their employer, and the employer is under a lot of regulations. pre-existing conditions, no lifetime limits, up to the age of 26. if all of these premiums go up, with the regulations that the law put
7:23 pm
7:24 pm
can we all gesticulate that employees have so graciously been providing there labor and talent and energy to corporations for years? >> there is a huge tax incentive for employers to provide health coverage. it is tax free on both sides. will we need to do in this modern economy, and i think you will see the republicans talk about this. allow people to have that tax break. health insurance is portable. they don't have to rely. lou: if you will forgive me, that is another dog whistle for letting corporations lower compensation in in the interests of being internationally -- >> has not true. lou: finish my sentence and then you can do whatever you wish
7:25 pm
with it. in the name of being internationally competitive. now go get him. >> here's the thing. absolutely right. the thing is this. however corporations pay you, whether they compensate you through cash, wages, health insurance, there is an economic value. the tax code rewards companies right now for giving you more of your compensation and health insurance, and you actually probably needed. if the tax code was fixed you would have higher wages and may be a skimpier health insurance -- lou: there is a corporation in this country would sign up to compensate more. have you looked to the compensation in this country? >> i have to get involved. a kind of disagree with everyone here. i think of insurance should be based of the employer, but i
7:26 pm
also think that people need a disincentive for overuse, when need more flexible spending. health insurance has gotten out of control. and your point is right which is what obamacare does, pushes it away from where it has worked fairly well to where it will not work. lou: the last word. >> all the evidence shows that when consumers have more control over their health insurance, the cost of the coverage and more control, they wind up seeking better value for their health care dollar. that is the direction we need to go. rather than government mandates, invisible restrictions, let consumers be able to make their own choices and the market response to them and they're only going to do that if they have the money and they get the tax incentive directly to shop for the best policy that suits their families in their own need. lou: i assume you mean by that that they have to pay more of the price of health care.
7:27 pm
>> i do not think so. i think that you will see -- lou: then i don't think it works. if you don't mean that they have to pay their way, i don't think we have any sensitivity, any response and it -- responsiveness, any elasticity within the health care market itself commanded fails. >> they're paying for it either way. >> they don't know the actual prices. there is not enough skin is the game here. lou: un nighter making so much more sense. >> it changes an incentive to get to more efficiency. we are never going to get there. it. lou: we have great political leaders, and they will lead us to the promised land. thank you for being with us. thank you. a very important book recommendation for you tonight. it is called of people. it is actually out. this is amazing. physical copy of this important

your reaction to iraq. >> well, the guardian and the new york times should both change the name. clearly, he did a service in the sense of advising us about the way the obama administration as shredded the fourth ammndment. that said to me it was perfectly possible to handle that with the united states. looks increasingly as if he was working for the russians all along. the obama administration, as it once, does not defend america. we could have kidnapped snowden in hong kong and brought him home. he should be brought home either openly or covertly so that he can be tried, convicted command executed as a trader. >> two groups in five administrations. the bureaucrats who don't want to see an agency going down like this, and the other, let's keep in mind, but then the camp of
